Professional Profile

I've been working as a WebDeveloper since 2006, love the web and learn new things everyday.

I started as a freelancer and worked for some Portuguese companies where I developed websites and applications. But I wanted more and different experiences. So I started my own company with 3 of my friends. It's my main occupation, an amazing challenge, a great company with 10 incredible people.

I also work as a teacher in the University where I finished my current degree, and it's also a passion. Love teaching and help students to achieve higher education and knowledge.

I am a dynamic and very interactive person that loves to develop and help developing. I'm very passionate about my work, and to share experiences with other developers and workers.

I want to be known as an entrepreneur of success. I will do it for sure.
